BPS asks our neighbors to make sure that their cars are not parked on school property, as we will be towing any cars parked in our school parking lots starting Sunday afternoon.  We will tow as necessary throughout the duration of the storm.

  • Please be advised BPS Facilities will begin towing any cars parked in school parking lots and on school grounds starting Sunday afternoon

  • This ensures that our BPS staff and contractors are able to clear snow from school grounds quickly and safely for our schools to start on time on Monday.

  • BPS will be pre-treating our schoolyards and parking lots beginning on Saturday, with Snow removal taking place through early Monday morning.

  • As of now school will take place on Monday January 8th 

  • We do anticipate some of our school buses may be delayed as clean up from the storm continues and our drivers cautiously navigate the roads.

    One of the primary considerations in parking design is maximizing efficiency while minimizing the impact on the surrounding environment. Well-designed parking spaces are not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, integrating seamlessly into the urban landscape. Landscaping, lighting, and pedestrian pathways contribute to creating a safe and inviting atmosphere for users.

    Maureen,
    WHILE WE ARE ON THE SUBJECT OF PARKING!!
    Have you tried to park your car inside the lot adjacent to the Public Library on East Broadway lately? Today I found that to be impossible, as it was filled with Commercial vehicles/vans , from companies outside of Southie. These were HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical and Soda/Bar vehicles which were all performing work at “The Playwright” which is under construction. These Commercial Vehicles were parked there ALL DAY while the workers were inside of the building! I questioned one of the drivers as he was getting in his van at the end of the workday , as to why he thought he could park there, not allowing a “SHOPPER” like me to have access to park there and then shop, He replied, “JOE”(He didn’t say who “JOE” is) allows us to park all of our work vehicles here while we work on his building?! As a Southie resident, I intend to spend my well earned money within the community, and support “SOUTHIE” merchants. However, if this abuse is to continue, it prevents me and others alike, to not be able to do so. I spoke with two merchants across the street from the lot who expressed the same dismay. I was also told, that very early in the morning (which is not my particular shopping hours) , these same construction workers have blocked the entrance to personal vehicles, (SOUTHIE” PEOPLE) as they save parking spots for the arrival of their fellow construction workers.
    THIS CANNOT GO ON! I am only a local shopper, but I am sure it has effects on the Boston Public Library Branch and most importantly, the LOCAL NEIGHBORHOOD MERCHANTS. I do not have any idea who this “JOE” is, but maybe someone out there does. If anyone else has had the same difficulty in parking there, please reinforce my feelings with your own story.

      Oh, that’s frustrating! Did you 311 the vehicles parked there? You can also reach out to Ed Flynn’s office!
